Burnley's European adventure has got off to a sticky start.

The Clarets have been delayed on their flight north, ahead of tomorrow's Europa League second qualifying round first leg against Aberdeen at Pittodrie, and tonight's UEFA press conference has been postponed.

The squad encountered technical difficulties with their plane, and due to the delay will not be able to visit the stadium this evening.

Article 68.03 of the 2018/19 UEFA Europa League regulations states: "Each club must hold a pre-match press conference the day before the match. Each press conference must be attended by the head coach of the team and at least one player.

"Press conferences must start between 12.00 and 20.00 local time. Exceptions to these timings must be agreed in advance with UEFA."
